Distributed around an internal central open space, the buildings bestow the project an introverted green safe environment.
Driving along the school, the accommodation and administration building signal the school’s main entrance framed underneath the suspended library. The entrance piazza and the linear covered axis represent the spine of the covered passages network interconnecting the different buildings of the school and the enclosed bus parking.
Due to the proximity of the mall, the performance hall and cafeteria building, as well as the main and mini gymnasium are placed on the southern edge to create a buffer zone for the classroom buildings.On the Ground level, the students experience is animated with a pleasant promenade from the entrance piazza to the KG’s playground, passing by the school’s cafeteria, towards the open landscaped outdoors onto the covered playgrounds or across a suspended bridge, going up to the performance hall, or culminating at the soccer field and the gymnasium.
Sun-breakers creep up the classroom buildings to counter for the direct rays of sun
The variety of treatments and the multiple colors animate the buildings facades giving each function of the school a unique identity
